Capresso 565 Infinity Coffee Grinder Review
The elegant and user-friendly design is what draws most coffee lovers to the Capresso 565, but what truly makes it stand out is that it has been designed with some durable and highly precise steel burrs that deliver superior quality coffee grounds.
Also, this amazing Capresso coffee grinder will have a relatively higher capacity when compared to others in its class as both the bean hopper and ground coffee container will accommodate more coffee to allow you to grind enough for several cups of coffee.

Everything about the Capresso 565 is just amazing, and it is the kind of a coffee grinder that you will want to have in your kitchen, and this is more so if you like Turkish coffee. But it can make coffee grounds for all kinds of coffee, and here are some of the factors that make it just fantastic.
High-Quality Conical Burrs
Like many other top-quality coffee grinders used for Turkish coffee including manual models ones like the Silva Manual S-X1, the Capresso 565 uses the high-quality and more efficient conical burrs.
The steel conical burrs are commercial grade which means they can crush any coffee bean type with ease. And they are designed with an advanced cutting edge which will ensure you always get highly precise and consistent grinding.
Apart from grinding more efficiently, these steel conical burrs are also designed to be super tough, and they can withstand even harder objects like small rocks in case your coffee beans end up with some.
Slower Grinding with Less Friction
Grinding can easily alter the coffee taste, and this often occurs when the grinding element generates too much heat when grinding and hence burning your coffee which makes it bitter.
Despite using steel burrs which are more prone to this problem, the Capresso 565 makes use of a gear reduction motor which will provide some of the slowest grinding speeds. This ensures you can grind your coffee with little heat build-up and minimal friction.
The gear reduction motor also comes with the advantage of reduced grinding noise to make this a quieter coffee grinder and also minimizes the static build-up.
Larger Grinding Capacity
Capresso makes this coffee grinder with the heavy coffee drinkers and those that make larger volumes of coffee in mind. They include a larger capacity hopper and grounds container to ensure you can grind more coffee at go.
The bean hopper will accommodate 8.8 ounces of whole beans which is a little more than a standard 1/2-pound coffee bag. With the ground coffee bin, on the other hand, you get a 4-ounce capacity which holds enough ground coffee for several cups of coffee.
Easier to Clean
With the removable upper conical burr on the Capresso 565, cleaning the grinding element will be faster and easier than when using models that have fixed upper and lower burrs.
Also, both the hopper and ground coffee container are easily removable for easy cleaning on the sink or in your dishwasher.
And besides cleaning the removable components and the grinding mechanism, you will only need to wipe down the rest of the grinder to complete the cleanup.
Simpler Grind Size Selection
One of the key drawbacks with other coffee grinders that also make super fine coffee grounds for Turkish coffee such as the Khaw-Fee HG1B and Pepper Mill Imports Coffee Mill is that choosing your preferred grind size can be quite hectic.
However, with this model, things are more straightforward as it comes with some clearly marked fineness settings. Hence, to choose your preferred grind size from the 16 options, you only need to rotate the selector to the grind size or number that you want.
And to make things even better, this coffee grinder is also highly precise, and so you can be sure the fineness you choose is what you will get.
Convenient Grind Timer
You do not have to sit and watch this coffee grinder as it crushes your beans since it includes a handy grind timer that will allow you to choose the grinding length.
With the timer, you can choose whether to grind the coffee beans for as little as 5 seconds or as much as 1 minute. This will help ensure you do not under or over grind.
But, besides the convenient grind timer, it is also possible to do pulse grinding if that is what works best for you.
Q: How long will it take to grind enough bean for a full carafe?
A: This coffee grinder is one of the fastest you can get out there at its price range. Since the timer ranges from 5 to 60 seconds, it means that no grinding should take more than a minute. But if you want to make just enough coffee ground to brew a full 12-cup carafe, then it will only take 5 to 10 seconds depending on the grind size you choose.
Q: Is it an expensive coffee grinder?
A: It will depend on how you look at it or what you are looking for. But, for such a high-quality electric coffee grinder that allows you to make coffee grounds for all kinds of coffee from the French press to the extra-fine grounds needed for Turkish coffee, it is quite fairly priced. However, for some coffee lovers, it might still be a little expensive given that there are many efficient models in the market for a fraction of its price.
Q: Will it fit in well in a small urban kitchen?
A: Yes, despite its larger capacity and the fact that it looks quite huge when seeing it for the first time, this is still quite a compact coffee grinder by all standards. Its overall dimensions are 5.6 x 12.2 x 8.7 in which means that besides having a small enough footprint, it is also not very tall, and so it should fit well under most kitchen cabinets.
Q: How do you clean it?
A: Clean up should hardly be a worry when using this coffee grinder as it will give you an easy time. The coffee beans and grounds containers are removable and can be easily cleaned in the sink, and the coffee grinder will also come with a handy dusting brush and grinder cleaning tablets to make cleanup a breeze.
Q: Should I buy it for small or average coffee demand?
A: Yes, the Capresso 565 can still work well enough for average coffee demand homes. Despite the larger capacity, you can still use this grinder to make grounds for just a couple cups of coffee as you do not need to fill up the hopper for it to work.
Should I Buy this Product?
Capresso 565 is a great coffee grinder for any coffee aficionado that is looking for an efficient and reliable coffee grinding mechanism, and this is more so for those that want something that can make superfine coffee grounds for Turkish coffee.
The commercial-grade burrs ensure you always get the maximum coffee flavor, and the super slow speed will allow you to grind coffee without generating a lot of heat or noise.
And overall, this is also easy to use and maintain coffee grinder that will be a perfect buy for any coffee lover looking for a grinder that will give them a hassle-free ownership.
